Los Angeles Aiding and Abetting Lawyer

Aiding and Abetting Attorney

In California, if you help someone with the commission of a crime in any way you may be charged with aiding and abetting. In order to commit this serious crime you do not actually have to be present when the crime is committed, but you would have to have had knowledge of the criminal act and participated in some manner before or after it occurred. You could participate by offering advice, actions or giving financial support that helped contribute to the crime in some way.

For instance, Bill tells you he is going to commit a bank robbery. After committing the robbery, you then help him hide the cash. You could then be charged with the crime of aiding and abetting by your actions of assisting him with hiding the money and not reporting the crime to law enforcement before or after it occurred. This charge in most cases is a felony offense and can also be upgraded to a conspiracy charge depending on the severity of the crime.

An aiding and abetting charge can result in the following severe penalties:

  • A felony charge
  • 1 year to life in prison
  • Large monetary fine
  • Community service
  • Probation
  • Permanent mark on criminal record
  • Driver's license suspension
  • Loss of right to vote
  • Loss of right to carry a hand gun
  • Loss of certain employment or education opportunities
